Mental Illness Awareness Week

mental illness awareness week miaw list of mental health illnessesToday marks the beginning of Mental Illness Awareness Week. (Sounds like a bit of a mouthful, so we will refer to it as MIAW.)

The image above lists a wide range of mental illnesses that many people face all over the world. While we obviously won’t be able to cover all of them, our goal for this week is to publish a blog post that highlights one mental illness per day, providing a brief description of each one.

Our main mandate here at Crown Jewels is to raise awareness of mental health, and we believe that a key component of that is educating the public about the various illnesses and conditions that fall under the umbrella of mental health issues.

If you would like to share your story with any of these mental health issues, please feel free to leave a comment on this week’s blog posts (anonymously if you wish) or their related Facebook posts.
